Fear of being alone/left behind. It's hard to make friends in a new city and even though I'm the one who left, sometimes it's hard to see all the awesome times everyone at home is having.
Thanks Internet for not letting me pretend all my friends are miserable and crying in a corner without me.
Being somebody whose skittishness often appears as aloofness to others, I'm pretty much perpetually petrified that either a) people won't like me or b) as soon as I stop being skittish, people will let me down.
Hi new friends! Totes not just waiting for you to disappoint me. Nothing to see here, move along. Love you!
This is one of those things I've been working on for a few years now. Working on being a little softer, a little less brusque. Working on remembering that my family and friends are loving and numerous and it's me that doesn't ask them to be there more, not them being unwilling to do it.
